1. My greatest joy is developing relationships with students, youth leaders, and families of our youth.

2. My greatest struggle is getting the congregation to see the importance of letting the youth have an active leadership role in all aspects of church life, particularly in regular worship service planning, membership on committees, and in providing fresh insight and innovative ideas for our church.

Step by step, this may, no, will take time, through your efforts, God woke me up that we have to have the youth involved and that it will be a blessing for Bethel. His time or ours?, it took a full 33 years before my hope for a better organ was realized. Remember, God is in control, we went through al kinds of hoops to convince potential ministers that they ought to come to Bethel, the answer was NO three times before our prayers were answered. The same occurred with your position, count your blessings, count them one by one, this path will lead where God wants it to go. Step by step we'll go, together, with God.
